Jetson TK1 Development Kit


The NVIDIA Jetson TK1 development kit gives you everything you need to unlock the power of the GPU for embedded systems applications. It's built around the revolutionary NVIDIA Tegra® K1 SoC and uses the same NVIDIA Kepler™ computing core designed into supercomputers around the world. This gives you a fully functional NVIDIA CUDA® platform for quickly developing and deploying compute-intensive systems for computer vision, robotics, medicine, and more.


NVIDIA delivers the entire BSP and software stack, including CUDA, OpenGL 4.4, and Tegra-accelerated OpenCV. With a complete suite of development and profiling tools, plus out-of-the-box support for cameras and other peripherals, NVIDIA gives you the ideal solution for helping shape the future of embedded on our Jetson Embedded Portal.
